After more than 50 years of continuous service, The Pretty Things - still featuring original members Phil May and Dick Taylor- remain a significant, challenging force in Rock 'n' Roll. Despite their veteran status, their contemporary relevance, undiminished energy and inspirational commitment inspire emerging generations of new artists and young fans, whilst retaining their devoted, fanatical, core fan base.

The Pretty Things were responsible for the world's first ever Rock Opera. Recorded in 1967 alongside The Beatles and The Pink Floyd at Abbey Road, S. F. Sorrow was the acknowledged template for The Who's Tommy, and was, in 1998, another first, when it was recorded live at Abbey Road, with David Gilmour on guitar, for the world's first ever Global Broadband Netcast.
